You will need to clean the Waste Ink pad of your printer and reset the printer. To reset the printer follow the steps below:

Download the SSC utility and install it.
This is the link to the SSC Utility:- http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

If there is a language option, select English.
When downloaded and installed, Right Click on the icon in your taskbar and select "Show Main Window". Select "Configuration" and then in BOTH boxes ---- the main list and also Installed Printers ---- select your printer model. With the printer on you can then select "Ink Monitor" and view the levels if you wish, otherwise Close the window, Right click again on the icon and select "Protection Counter", "Show Current Value". This will show both the current and maximum values. Click OK to quit without change. If you wish to reset it, go back through "Protection Counter" and "Reset Protection Counter", A message will prompt about replacing the waste ink pads. Remember, the pads should be changed or washed, dried, and refitted or they "may" eventually overflow through the bottom / lower sides of the printer casing. You will see there are quite a few useful tools in this little utility including cleaning only the black OR colour nozzles, but remember that if you have more than one printer the one you wish to work on must be "Set as Default" in "Printers & Faxes".

There is an Epson Adjustment Program to reset the Waste Ink Pad counter. Looking for a free one for you, but all I could find is a $50 service adjustment program on this website (scroll down for your printer):

How do I reset the sensor after a waste pad error message for an Epson 7000? The pad is not full and I need to reset so I can print.


Hi


Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need a service manual, for the removal procedure.


Also Replace the following parts and reset the counters as described below:
- Waste Ink Pads
- F Box
- Pump Assembly
- Cap Assembly
- Cleaner, Head
- From Maintenance Mode 2 enter the Counter Init. Menu and initialize the Waste Ink counter and Cleaning counter.

Also check the end article at this given link for the resolution of the problem:-

I use a Mac computer. I got a message that the computer requires service. Th Utility ink pad is saturated. When I contact Epson for the patch they only provide help with Window PC's. Is there anyway I...


The R300 can be reset using a key press combination:

1. Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

2. Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.

That's the short term fix for the waste ink counter but obviously your printer still has a fair bit of waste ink building up so I'd definitely recommend fitting some form of external waste tank or getting the printer serviced so you don't risk flooding the printer in the long run.

Hope that helps.

Error message saying parts have come to the end of their life. Does this mean the whole printer needs replacing


It mean waste ink pad full. Epson stop to prin to prevent waste ink flow from pad to other (power supply is nearest part). Replace pad, or wash pad. Or just extend outlet pipe to outside of printer. You must reset waste ink counter to make printer work again. Use SSC utility to rset it. Find at indoreset.blogspot.com.

Stopped printing after 'waste ink full message' how to I fix it.


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Printer stopped printing. Error message


Thjis is indication the Waste in collector pades need changing eventually.- but no now. you have plenty of warning
Reset Epson R300/200
press three buttons to reset the counters
The buttons are "STOP" "Maintenance" and "POWER"
or down load the epson utility www.ssclg.com and use the reset counter feature

The printer will sound like its going to blow up, but thats normal.

You can do this about 5 times before your printer starts to piss out ink over the table because the Waste Ink Ink Pad is full

To avoid eventual flooding go to rear of the machine- remove the little door and rake around for a small plastic pipe buried under some padding under the left side.
Fix to this a thin piece of ploythene tube[Fish tank air supply], extend it to our side the machine and place in a suitable container to collect the waste ink..
